The FBI Visited Bowie State to Promote Cyber Careers. Here’s What Students Learned

Three Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) special agents from area field offices came to Bowie State University on Friday, armed with the promise of opportunity for students interested in helping them combat the cybercrime facing the United States.

The over 100 students in question journeyed to the historically Black university, located near DC in Prince George’s County, Maryland, from area high schools and colleges. The special agents, who currently serve the FBI as cybercrime investigators and researchers, presented to these students as part of a special event for educating young people about cyber careers at the FBI and National Security Agency. The event was hosted by Bowie State’s Department of Computer Science, whose chair, Rosemary Shumba, also spoke.
